Arsenal surprised many after scoring in the last minute in the match against Luton Town. Commenting on Arsenal's great performance, Peter Crouch looked back at Sir Alex Ferguson's team. Crouch believes that Arteta's Arsenal is very similar to the United team under the leadership of Ferguson.

Even when you think they have no chance, they manage to get back into the game and achieve victory. “It reminds me of Rio [Ferdinand]’s teams under Sir Alex Ferguson at [Manchester] United,” he said, as quoted by eurosport.com!

“Even when they were losing, you thought that they were going to win the game.
And Arsenal have got that at the moment. Not playing as well as they were last season, I think, but they’re still right up there winning games and you always feel like they’re going to win even from losing positions.

It’s a great thing to have”. - he said, as quoted by eurosport.com!

Rio Ferdinand reacts

Rio Ferdinand is also delighted with Arsenal's games. For many years we have not had the chance to see Arsenal like this, who have a great chance to win the title.

The former English defender especially praised Declan Rice. He arrived this summer from West Ham and has already shown that he is a great reinforcement for the Londoners. “I haven’t felt an Arsenal team where I’d sit there and go ‘I know they’re going to score late.’ he said.

“That feeling you get with a team that looks capable of winning games, churning out results and being real title contenders to win a league.
“This team look like that now, and Declan Rice has just come in there, we haven't mentioned a 100-million-pound player, he has become almost the driving force of that team now”.
Arsenal had a chance to win the title last year. This time they want to achieve that goal!
